    My wife would like a knife in her vehicle. I want her to have an auto knife but I'm not familiar with many. I have a Gerber auto knife but it is too large for her.

    Recommendations for a good, American made auto knife are appreciated. My wife is very petite so it does need to be an appropriate size for her.

    I’ll second Benchmade for Auto knives. I’d seriously look at a fixed blade knife for her unless she’s real comfortable with knives.

    Good call on Benchmade, I forgot about them.

    Dangerous page to peruse, now I want a new one too.

    She's not familiar with pocket knives though I wouldn't say not comfortable. A fixed blade would be a little long. Something that can be concealed and opened quickly without fumbling around is what we're looking for.

    The Benchmade Auto Mini Stryker looks good.

    Something she can open without breaking a nail...

    Yeah, except that's not her at all. Not that she wouldn't like to have pretty nails but the homeschooling four kids and taking care of the house kind of put a damper on that. I'll tell her the response, she'll get a laugh out of it.

    Before you press a buy button somewhere. Take a look at Out The Front(OTF) auto knives. Then all she'll have to do is slide a button to open and slide it again to close. It sounds wild but they're made. Benchmade has some top shelf stuff.

    I own 4 benchmade. My everyday carry is a full size Infidel, dagger blade, OTF auto.

    The Out The Side(OTS) auto is cool but you have to close the blade manually.

    not American made but my lightning D/A's I have had for 4-5 years still function perfect lock tight and I am not afraid to abuse or lose them at 30 bucks a pop.
